Career Management@UW: Course extended to 2020 and a new course launched

Career Management is the process of identifying and aligning skills, strengths, and goals with organizational needs and individual well-being. Managers support career management by coaching employees and jointly create a plan to achieve career-related goals. Effective managers listen and encourage team members through intentional career conversations. A new course for managers has been developed with this in mind.

Due to popular demand Learning and Talent Development will continue through 2020 this 3 ½ hour workshop – Overview: Managers Supporting Employee Career Development. The workshop is designed to provide you with a practical approach for understanding career management, employee career development, and career conversations.

This course will:

  • Explain the stages of employee career development, self-explore/assess, goal-setting, strategy/plan, discover/engage, and brand/articulate
  • Initiate career conversations with employees
  • Provide workplace tools to use with your team

After successful completion of the Overview course, you can now dive deeper and register for this 3 ½ workshop – Creating Time and Space for Employee Career Development. Assess workplace possibilities and limitations to professional growth, begin to strategize employee career discovery and engagement and start the process of creating a solid plan for the development of your team.
